Women think about food a lot—as in, more than they think about sex. A recent survey shows that while 25% of women think about food every half-hour, only 10% think about sex that often. When it comes to men, 5% think about sex once a minute and 36% find their minds wandering to it every 30 minutes. But even though women are thinking about food, they're probably not enjoying it: 25% say they're always concerned about their weight, the Daily Mail reports.

Even more depressing: More than 60% of women say they don't like eating in front of their partners, and 13% say they've chosen a "healthier" option while eating out instead of what they actually wanted. (Even so, 15% also admitted to eating junk food secretly, and 10% admitted to lying about it.) All of this comes to a head in the bedroom: Nearly 50% of women in relationships say they feel uncomfortable getting undressed.
